Aciclovir is a pharmacologically inactive substance. After penetration into cells which are infected with herpes simplex virus types I and (HSV I & HSV II) or varicella-zoster virus (VSV), aciclovir is converted into a virostatic agent. The conversion of aciclovir is catalysed by viral HSV- or VZV- thymidine kinase. Human thymidine kinase does not use aciclovir effectively as a substrate, hence the toxicity to mammalian host cells is low.
There is no experience of the effect of aciclovir tablets on human female fertility. Aciclovir tablets have been shown to have no definite effect upon sperm count, morphology or motility in man.
